Are you a Speed Freak? Do you have a desire to see how fast you can fling your ammo? Would you like to be recognized for a feat that is not that easy to achieve? If so we have a club for you, The “BGF Speed Club”. Membership is challenging, but achievable.

Here's how to become a member:
Make a video with you and the Chrony should be visible when the shots are made. After each shot, either zoom to the Chrony readout or move the camera close enough to see the readout, keeping the Chrony in view at all times. The fastest shot must be backed up by at least one other shot within 10% of the same velocity. Please do not edit the video at any point between the first and last shot. It's OK to shoot a lot of shots and remove from each end, but the qualifying shots should be continuous.
Post the video and full information about the blowgun length, caliber, and ammo used below. Use any type or configuration of blowgun and darts you wish. Only human breath power is acceptable.

The purpose of the club is to recognize achievement and to advance the art of blowgunning. Members will be allowed to place an “BGF Speed Club” badge, with the appropriate achieved level of speed in their signature area.

Here are the badges that can be used by those that achieve each level of speed:

If you need a Chrony, this one is a good deal, and will do the job well:

This isn't an easy feat. I obviously have to work on my darts, and lungs :). So far I only managed in the 170s. Don't worry I won't give up.. And I will get my stinking badge :)

Congrats beanflip!  I've got to dig out my F1, and yes as Aaron mentioned they are great for the money.

I've got the chrony set up, but I'm a little hesitant to try it with a blowgun.  I'm not sure my asthmatic lungs will get things up to speed.  I may have to do a video on how not to get a speed badge.  Either way it will have to be after the first of the year as I will be working New Years Eve and New Years day.

 

Good luck to everyone....I hope to see some really good speeds.

 

Todd

Hey Todd, do it only when you feel comfortable.  No shame in not getting there.  Have fun. :)
